DropBoxControl.au3 - Pause/Resume Syncing!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I present to you a way to automate DropBox, at least syncing...

Sample:

Posted Image

Donwload:

DropBoxControl_(RedirectLink).html

Usage:

Ctrl + Q to exit.

Ctrl + Pause to Pause/Resume DropBox!

It can also use the following:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Before="%scitedir%DropBoxControl.exe" /Pause
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_After="%scitedir%DropBoxControl.exe" /Resume
Just copy the executable into the folder of the editor!

I hope you enjoy!

Regards,

João Carlos.

The program is working normal here...

Do the following:

1 - Let the DropBox syncing normally;

2 - Run the DropBoxControl;

3 - Use the keys to pause

4 - Copy or create a new file;

5 - Now use the keys to resume;

6 - You will notice that Dropbox adds new file in the clouds!

I did several other tests and they all worked!

Edit: I looked at the event (https://www.dropbox.com/events) and I could prove it's working!

I'm not in a position to test right now, but it could be down to the locale perhaps? This is just 'a throwing it out there' guess.

Hi,

If I create a cmd file using the /pause and /resume switches, I can pause or resume Dropbox by running the cmd file, but if I then try to schedule these cmd files with Task Scheduler although the Scheduler reports that the task completed. Dropbox is not paused or resumed.

The same behaviour occurs if I start DropBoxControl.exe with either switch.

OS is Windows 7

Any ideas?

      Hello,
      the following script is running quite nicely for a friend of mine doing a year of work and travel to have a backup at home for all the pics and movies taken with her mobile phone,
       
      The facts:
       
      At home: a VMWARE virtual machine with dropbox installed for her DB account
      On-the-Road: One mobile phone, Camera Uploads are activated for her dropbox account, one Laptop.
       
       
      The idea is to have a copy of *ALL* pictures and movies taken with the mobile phone *OUTSIDE* the dropbox folder, so that the DB Max Size is never exceeded.
      The script is running at home and doing this:
      Copy all content from the "Camera Upload Folder" within the dropbox folder to some folder *OUTSIDE* the DB folder Move all content from the "Camera Upload Folder" do some other folder *INSIDE* the DB folder to indicate, that the backup copies at home were done successfully  
      Dropbox is also installed on the Laptop she has with her. So on the Laptop she checks from time to time the destination folder inside the dropbox folder and moves the pics / movies on the laptop to some other folder outside the dropbox as well. By that final step the images are moved out of the dropbox on the mobile phone as well, so that there is always space left to sync more pics / movies.
       
      As moving pics / movies out of the dropbox folder on the laptop doesn't touch the copies in the mobile phone's "Gallery", she has all the pics / movies at all three locations:
      Mobile Phone Laptop VM at home  
      The folder names propably are different for non-German localized Windows and Dropbox, just modify them to meet your localization.

      Hello my friends
      Can we create a single context menu on more than one item?
      For example, a context menu includes standardized options on more than one control, such as buttons or check boxes
      to Create a context menu on one item am using this function
      GUICtrlCreateContextMenu ($ HWND)
      How to link it with more than one element please?
      or if we can't do that, please give me a solution
      so i tried to add an context menus to all the controls but the script will be long, for that if their are any solutions i hope to give it to me
      thanks in advanced

      Is there a (simple) way to make your script using a picture-control to resize the gui?
      This would be useful for a transparant pop-up window with a custom made theme using picture controls:
      $Form = GUICreate('', 301, 173, 5, 5, $WS_POPUP, BitOR($WS_EX_LAYERED, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)) GUICtrlCreatePic(@scriptdir & "\resize_win.bmp", 0, 73, 20, 51) ; some api call or code telling the os to use this picture as a resize border GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKLEFT+$GUI_DOCKTOP+$GUI_DOCKBOTTOM+$GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While True if GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE then Exit WEnd  
      EDIT: to make it more clear what i wanna do, if you go with the mouse arrow over the border of a re-sizable window the arrow changes to a "resize" arrow, you click and drag the border and then the window size adjusts to the mouse position until you release the mouse button.
      I want my picture control to be used the same way as the resize border to resize my window.

      DOn't know the details completely.
       
      WHen I try to automate the control clicks for testing the UI.
      THe below control is not detected.
      As you can see, during UI operations I can click the elements one by one.
      But all the elements is selected as a whole set, when I use the Windowinfo tool.
